Hi, thank you for this post. Not so long ago I did try this one cause I needed to hide my blog online cause I think its so private but of course there are viewers that I would want to be seen. This is a big help for future use. Thanks again.

No. It doesn't deny access to search engines. However they will see the maintenance page like any other user. This plugin should only be activated when you want to take your blog offline / in maintenance mode.

Hi. Problem: I find 'php_self' occasionally not to work with WP installations with a custom path and custom permalinks. This is a problem with many plugins actually. I suggest these changes to your code: use 'request_uri' instead of 'php_self', and use 'strpos' instead of 'strstr'. what do you think?
May 25, 2007: 9:21 pm
very cool, thank you!

Angsuman - take a look at the maintenance mode plugin for your next update. Including an admin option page where you can add your own html to generate your own 'down for the count' page would be a useful addition

wp-cache 2 is the most likely cause. Check that you do not have gzip compression turned on. I also faced such problem with Bad behavior plugin. But never ever can my plugin :) cause this behavior.
June 13, 2006: 6:26 am
It does not work. I am not sure if this has anything to do with the wp-cache plugin..
June 13, 2006: 12:49 am
Leion, I cannot see anyway the plugin is causing this as it is inactivated. In any case delete the plugin file from plugins folder. Also delete your cacahe folder under wp-contents. Let me know how it goes.
June 12, 2006: 11:17 pm
Hi I have a urgent problem. After activating this plugin, and deactivating it, I find that my site returns a blank page only. I can still get back the offline page when I activate this plugin. There is nothing I can do to get the site to work again. Can you please give me instructions on how to clear this? Thanks in advance.

You can always delete/rename the plugin file and things will be back to normal. I will take a look into this.

Several people have successfully used this plugin and are using even today. The problem appears to be specific to your site. Unfortunately I do not have much time at the moment to debug and support this issue.

This plugin worked so long my browser does not log off my admin account. If I do so, I cannot log in again. The site has shut me out too. It is good for short mantainance sessions though :) Thanks for this plugin.

that didn't work properly. It would be nice to include the header and footer to keep the exsisting look and feel. It was very simple to get this working. // Message to display to the users of the blog $message = ''; //$message .= ''; $message .= 'This blog is currently undergoing scheduled maintenance. Please try after '.$retry_after.' minutes. Sorry for the inconvenience.'; // DO NOT MODIFY BELOW THIS LINE if(!strstr($_SERVER['PHP_SELF'], 'feed/') && !strstr($_SERVER['PHP_SELF'], 'wp-admin/')) { @ get_header(); echo $message.'Plugin provided by Taragana'; @ get_footer(); exit(); } The @ was to supress some error message. I only tested this with the default theme.

June 17, 2005: 8:16 am
Nice plugin, thanks! :-) Just wondering if there was anyway to modify it so that the logged in admin (user level 10) would still see the site as normal, but any lower level users/not logged-in users would see the "down for maintenance" message? Thanks!
June 17, 2005: 3:31 am
